Lawrence Technological University is an institution that encourages the intellectual and personal growth of its students as scholars and citizens. Linking theory and practice with advanced learning technologies, Lawrence Technological University's mission is to provide superior undergraduate, graduate, and lifelong learning for leadership, professional achievement, and civic excellence. In this pursuit, the University recognizes that the transmission of knowledge, the pursuit of truth, and the development of individuals require the free exchange of ideas, self-expression, and the challenging of beliefs and customs. Academic freedom is essential to the achievement of these purposes.
Honesty, integrity, and caring are essential qualities of an educational institution, and the concern for values and ethics is important to the whole educational experience. The Student Code of Conduct outlines the rights and responsibilities and expected levels of conduct of students in the University community. Fundamental to the achievement of community among the members of the University is the recognition by all such members that each shares a responsibility to observe University regulations. This obligation, which is an extension of the citizen's responsibility to observe the law of the land, is an essential corollary to participation in the academic rights afforded to members of the University.
A student voluntarily joins the Lawrence Technological University community and thereby assumes the obligation of abiding by the standards prescribed in the Student Code of Conduct. As such, students are required to engage in responsible social conduct that reflects credit upon the University community and to model good citizenship in any community. The University, through the Office of the Dean of Students, maintains the exclusive authority to impose sanctions for behaviors that violate the Student Code of Conduct.
All students enrolled at Lawrence Technological University have access to the Student Code of Conduct. Printed copies are available through the Office of the Dean of Students and the Office of University Housing.
